I'm glad someone mentioned 11/22/68, the version Phil talked about in Searching for the Sound...

"We tune up the guitars, the drummers rattle off paradiddles, and Jerry counts into 'Morning Dew.' I know from the first chord that it's going to be a good night, in spite of the feedback from the PA. Jerry is on fire, his guitar snarling and caressing at the same time. The drummers are crunching out the groove as if their lives depended on it - mickey gesturing after each backbeat, and billy grimly holding the groove close to home. The tune builds to its harrowing climax; Jerry screams out the final line - 'I guess it doesn't matter anyway' - and we hammer home the final chords."

EQ the crap out of this recording and give it a listen sometime. You won't be disappointed.

Do any better recordings exist?

It has some wacky sounds coming out from Tom? Bob? Jer?

Thanks again

Please tell me there are better recordings! this stuff is hot, and i would love to get a better listen at mickey's work. Even the feedback adds a cool element.

Or anyone know of a show with just mickey on the drums?

It's weird how Phil specifically mentions Billy, since he wasn't there. If you listen, you can hear pretty clearly that he's not playing. There is also some confusion about whether this or the next show in Athens, Ohio, was TC's first show. I swear I hear some keyboard parts on 11/22 that sound kind of sophisticated for Pig.

As for sound quality, this is the only copy I've ever seen/heard. Like I said, if you EQ it enough, and listen through a normal system (I would not recommend headphones), then this is a very enjoyable show.

could you suggest an "EQ" system?

I dont have any on my computer, nor any previous experience with them.

I use Windows Media Player for Archive.org and SugarMegs.org streaming.

Right-click anywhere on the WM player.
Look for "enhancements".
Look for "equalizer" in the enhancements sub-menu.

If you don't have "real" speakers hooked to your computer: GET SOME!! You will love it. I got these last month and love them. 60 bucks and change.

At home, I have some AL's that are now almost 15 years. They have been moved, and dropped, numerous times with no ill effect. And, when I stick them in the open window and crank my Dew or Skynyrd, I can almost hear my Asian neighbor say, "Damn wednecks" behind his privacy fence.
